It’s so fitting to be able to write this after two incredibly strong guest blogs by George Staropoli and Deborah Goonan. But sometime over the past 48 hours we passed another readership milestone. In the 12 month running average we have now surpassed 400,000 readers and more than 3.2 million pages of material read.
I haven’t tallied up all the readers since this website began, but I know by now it’s well over a million. So, together we really are reaching people.
Certainly, ongoing problems in the economy are bringing out the mean side in many HOAs and this obviously is causing homeowners to search the web to see if they’re all alone in their personal struggles. It’s also a strange weekend to have CAI come out with more blatantly fake polling data claiming that people in Homeowners Associations are happy with their HOAs. Both George and Deborah have written papers that prove what a sham these CAI polls are. But CAI has billions of dollars to pour into the halls of the nation’s legislatures. We’re just the people.
Congratulations, Ward. I trust those numbers will be increasing in the coming months and years.
Remember Tokyo Rose? Iva Toguri was the most famously linked name behind Tokyo Rose. She was a native to Los Angeles and was stranded in Japan because she was visiting her family when the war broke out.
The intent of her broadcasts was to disrupt the morale of allied forces listening to her broadcast. American servicemen in the Pacific often listened to the propaganda broadcasts to get a sense, by “reading between the lines,” of the effect of their military actions.
Many American sailors and soldiers found her broadcasts cartoonishly funny. In regards to the CAI “data,” we too should read between the lines, and declare this bogus CAI data just as cartoonishly funny.
